Traffic calming describes the process and measures applied to address concerning motorist behaviours, typically on residential streets. Most concerns relate to speeding and shortcutting. Traffic calming seeks to align driver behaviour with the intended function of the street in order to improve safety and neighbourhood livability. 

The City of Winnipeg recently updated their residential traffic calming program to a two phased process. Phase 1 addresses localized concerns and Phase 2 addresses neighbourhood-wide issues. Rebecca’s presentation will:

  • Introduce the concept of traffic calming and discuss advancements in this field.
  • Discuss the need for the City’s update and the update process.
  • Present the phase 1 process and traffic calming measures commonly used in Winnipeg.
  • Provide an overview of a phase 2 study that is currently being trialed in one neighbourhood in Winnipeg.

Concludes with a discussion on residential speed limits.
